Gordonstoun is set between the mountains and the sea in a stunning 200-acre woodland campus in Moray, Scotland and was recently named UK Boarding School of the Year.
Ensuring every young person aged 4-18 reaches their full potential is fundamental at Gordonstoun and the school motto, Plus Est en Vous - there is more in you - underpins school life. This is reflected not just in strong GCSE, BTEC and A Level results and impressive university admissions, but also in the personal progress that students make.

As the original provider of ‘character education’, Gordonstoun boasts a unique curriculum, delivering academic success whilst facilitating exposure to a broad range of experiences. There’s skiing in the nearby Cairngorms, countless drama and dance productions, a plethora of sporting opportunities and crewing the school’s 80-foot sail training vessel 'Ocean Spirit of Moray'. With Gordonstoun’s pastoral care described as ‘sector leading’ and ‘outstanding’ during recent inspections, Gordonstoun is a unique place of education, balancing a broad, academic, personal and challenging curriculum whilst maintaining a warm, close-knit community.

As a school founded on service to others, students enrol in services as part of their Gordonstoun education, including the Fire Service, Coastguards, Conservation and
Community Service. Gordonstoun’s dedication to service is one of the many reasons military families choose Gordonstoun.

“ As well as preparing students for exams, Gordonstoun prepares them for life.”
